India cricketers suspended over inappropriate TV comments


"Any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support", Kohli said.

The BCCI statement said both offending players were initially hit with a notice which led them to respond with an apology.

The timeframe of their bans has not been confirmed but it is nearly certain the pair will miss the three-match ODI series against Australia - starting today - and a limited-overs tour of New Zealand later in January. "The game's moved forward since the 2015 World Cup and I don't think we've quite moved that way with the trends of the game, so from our point of view it's making sure that we get our style right - you've got to score 300 plus to be competitive", Haddin told Fox Sports.

When is Australia vs India taking place? .

Earlier, Test discard Peter Handscomb top-scored with 73 off 61 balls as India restricted Australia to 288 for five.

Less than a week since India won its first-ever Test series in Australia, attended turns to the white-ball format of the game, with a a host of changes made for both sides.

They played a total of 13 ODI matches. While this is a meagre return for a batsman of his stature, the worrying aspect is Dhoni's strike-rate of 71.42, which is remarkably lower than his ODI career strike-rate of 87.89.

IPL team Mumbai Indians also wrote saying, "With that single, MS Dhoni completes 10,000 ODI runs in the India jersey".

Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni will add the experience in the middle order.

The 30-year-old smashed three centuries and scored 453 runs in the ODIs against West Indies in October, 2018.

Ball-tracking replays confirmed the ball was pitching outside leg stump, however Rayudu had already wasted India's only review. Only Manish Pandey's fighting hundred in the final ODI had saved India from a 5-0 scoreline.

Kohli also stated that, in Pandya's absence, Ravindra Jadeja would need to step up as the all-rounder. India may go in with Kuldeep Yadav as the only spinner in the side.

"We have to look at the pitch".

It brought Khawaja and Marsh together, and they put on 92 runs off 111 balls for the third wicket.
